The phone comes with top-of-the-line specifications in its price range and one of the first biggest competitors of the S5 Pro is the Samsung Galaxy A51. Now the UMIDIGI S5 Pro’s unboxing video surfaced and let’s take a look.

UMIDIGI S5 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy A51

Both the smartphones — UMIDIGI S5 Pro and Samsung Galaxy A51 — offer value-for-money specifications, but come with some key differences that could be a key factor to the buyer’s purchase decision.

The UMIDIGI S5 Pro features an all-screen design experience with a pop-up selfie camera, which could come in handy for an immersive content viewing experience. Galaxy A51, on the other hand, has a punch-hole cutout on the middle of the display.

Speaking of the performance, UMIDIGI S5 Pro leapfrogs the Galaxy A51. That’s because the S5 Pro is powered by the Helio G90T gaming processor, which scores 283k on AnTuTu(v8) that is much higher than Galaxy A51’s 175k score. Furthermore, with an over $100 cheaper price, the S5 Pro has a bigger RAM and doubles the Galaxy A51’s internal storage, giving you 6GB RAM and 256GB internal storage compared to the Galaxy A51’s 4GB + 128GB model. And the S5 Pro comes with a bigger 4680mAh battery and faster charging.

When it comes to cameras, on-paper, both phones have a similar 48MP quad camera setup but the S5 Pro has a bigger aperture for the main camera and a higher resolution for the ultra wide angle camera, while the Galaxy A51 is equipped with a better selfie shooter. 

Besides, the UMIDIGI S5 Pro is a global version phone with global bands support, while Galaxy A51’s bands depend on which version you have.

Pricing remains a key factor. UMIDIGI A5 Pro will be at only $249.99 from 26th May. While Galaxy A51 got a $399.99 price tag for its 4GB + 128GB model. Overall, the S5 Pro has a higher value for the money than Galaxy A51.
